Help! I need somebody…(#MFRWAuthor)



Oh, my goodness! We are into the 11th week of the year already? This week’s #MFRWAuthor blog challenge is “If I never had to do this one task again…”

Some of these weekly topics are difficult to answer. This one isn’t.

If I never had to deal with telephone customer service, and I use that term loosely, I would jump for joy. This goes for cable television, medical practitioners, bank or insurance personnel, and any and all government bureaucracies.

All of the “push this button for that” business is circular and infuriating. My husband has been known to bellow “Get me a human being” into the phone. This rarely works. I try repeatedly pressing zero. Same non-result.

If by some stroke of luck you actually get to a person, that person cannot give you a satisfactory answer anyway. The most recent excuse I got was they hadn’t called back since they were catching up from the hurricane. The hurricane that happened six months ago.

Take a look here to see what bugs my fellow authors.

  1. I hear what you’re saying. I hate the automated ones where you have to speak what you want. I’ve been known to hit zero myself. On the other hand, my son worked in customer service, and he never came home in a good mood. I’m glad he no longer has that job. Have a nice weekend.
